Sleep lines, which are formed by the compression and shearing of our delicate facial tissue against a pillow, become permanent and unsightly over time. Filling them is only a temporary solution, as they will return quickly. Long term side sleeping will also cause an increase in cheek decent as well as flatness on the preferred sleeping side. Numerous studies have shown that lines associated with tissue shift are best prevented.
enVy’s® unique patented design allows the user to sleep on their side or back in perfect alignment without putting any pressure on their face.
Compression Lines / Sleep Lines
Sleep lines are the lines that are caused by tissue shift from the compression of the weight of our heads on a pillow. They are often seen in pairs or threes and are very difficult to treat. Prevention of the formation of these lines is best. The two ways to prevent them are 1) Sleep on your back which for many is difficult. 2) Sleep on your side on a specialty formed anti wrinkle pillow such as enVy Pillow. The above picture demonstrates the effects of tissue shift (shearing and compression) through a transparent pillow.
